¡¡¡¡¡°All you guys, follow me. Fragrant Rice, meaning ¡®Daoxiang¡¯ in Chinese. Have you seen the paddy field near our community?¡± On Oct 19, Turkoglu from Ethiopia gave his first English lesson as volunteer teacher of ¡°Warm Nest¡±in Dongsha Community, Donghu Road, Furong District. How happy these children were when playing games and learning English with a foreign teacher.

¡¡¡¡In Dongsha Community, many of the residents are migrant workers, for whose children getting extra-class English lessons has always been their dream. ¡°We want to build a ¡®warm nest¡¯ for the children especially for those of migrant workers by inviting a foreign volunteer teacher.¡± Huang Xifei, head of Dongsha Neighborhood Committee contacted Hunan University and Hunan Agricultural University and the initiative won support from overseas students from various countries including Britain and Poland.
